Geothermal & Heat Pump Rebates

Incentives and rebates apply only to members of Firelands Electric Co-op who participate in the cooperative's load management program by having a PeakBuster device installed on their geothermal or heat pump system. Equipment must be approved and inspected by the cooperative’s Energy Advisor and a PeakBuster device must be installed/tested (at no charge to the member) before any incentives can be issued to the member. By participating in the cooperative’s load management program, PeakBuster members acknowledge that equipment may be activated on extremely hot/humid afternoons during the summer between 2 pm and 6 pm to avoid high electric demand. The PeakBuster equipment allows the cooperative to temporarily cut power to the circuit or reduce the run-time of the cooling system compressor during peak power load demand.
